LAUREL, MS (WDAM) - A Laurel home was heavily damaged by fire Thursday morning.
Fire Chief James Brown said the owner of the home, on N. 11th Avenue, noticed the blaze in the back of the one-story, wood-frame structure around 10 a.m. and tried to put it out with a garden hose before calling authorities.
Brown said although firefighters had the fire under control in about 20 minutes, much of the interior was damaged.
Brown said about 15 firefighters worked the fire. There were no injuries.
